Book "Stranger Things" Cast Members for the 2017 Cincinnati Comic Expo

I created this petition because I would like to persuade Andrew Satterfield and Matt Bredestege to book cast members from the Netflix smash-hit series Stranger Things to be celebrity guests at the 2017 Cincinnati Comic Expo. Every year, the expo that happens in my hometown brings familiar faces of TV, movies, and comic books to the Duke Energy Center in Downtown Cincinnati, for a weekend of pop-culture and fandom-inspired fun. In 2016, the expo brought John Barrowman of Doctor Who and Arrow fame, Karen Fukuhara of Suicide Squad, and Stan Lee for his final Midwest signing, just to name a few. In years' past, the expo has hosted Chandler Riggs of The Walking Dead, Paul McGann of Doctor Who, Adam West and  Burt Ward of Batman's Batman and Robin, Sean Astin of Lord of The Rings (and the upcoming season 2 of Stranger Things), Claudia Wells of Back to the Future, and more. Each year of the Cincinnati Comic Expo promises to be "bigger and better", and director Andrew Satterfield, media relations director Matt Bredestege, and their team, commit to bringing this mantra to life. With that said, I believe having cast members (such as Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Millie Bobbie Brown, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, and so on) of Stranger Things as panel guests at the 2017 expo would be a legendary feat. Not only would it provide an interesting change to the usual format of all-adults in the panel, it would give more expo-goers who have not seen the show a chance to be exposed to it and its lead actors. The expo happens annually in September, and with the second season of the show premiering on Halloween of this year, having the actors as celebrity guests at the expo would be an excellent promo opportunity for the sophomore season's premiere. As well, it would sincerely please me, a die-hard fan of the show, to meet the actors, as well as it would please the plethora of Stranger Things fans in Cincinnati/Dayton/Northern Kentucky, as well as fans in nearby states and cities who would travel here to meet the cast.  Bringing the actors to this year's expo could definitely increase ticket sales and attendees, and increase the amount of fun attendees have and the memories they will make as well. Thank you for reading. I hope you will consider signing this petition and spreading the word about it too.
